The screenings dovetail with a major new exhibition, and examine how left wing values have influenced cinema
Lecturers from the Department of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies (CLAS), in collaboration with Tate Liverpool, have organised a series of talks and screenings of politically engaged films from around the world.
Political commitment in World Cinema features films which reflect significant milestones in world cinema and touch on the broader political and social context in which they are made.
Dr Tom Whittaker, Lecturer in Film Studies in CLAS, said: “This is the beginning of an exciting collaboration between Film Studies lecturers at Liverpool and the Tate.
“The films which we showcase in the series show how left-wing values have shaped filmmaking in a number of different national and historical contexts.”
The series also includes the Mexican film, Heart of Time (Corazón del Tiempo) and the The Bicycle Thieves (Ladri di biciclette).
Heart of Time is a film about love in the time of Zapatista Resistance and will be screened on Thursday 16 January 2014 at 2.30pm.
The Bicycle Thieves is Vittorio De Sica’s 1948 story of a poor father searching post-World War II Rome for his stolen bicycle, without which he will lose the job which was to be the salvation of his young family will be screened on Wednesday 22 January 2014 at 2pm
